First of all, I'm using Hadoop-2.6.0. I want to launch my own app master on a specific node in a YARN cluster in order to open a server on a predetermined IP address and port. To that end, I wrote a driver program in which I created a ResourceRequest object and called setResourceName method to set a hostname, and attached it to a ApplicationSubmissionContext object by callingsetAMContainerResourceRequest method.
I tried several times but couldn't launch the app master on a specific node. After searching code, I found that RMAppAttemptImpl invalidates what I've set in ResourceRequest as follows:
// Currently, following fields are all hard code,
// TODO: change these fields when we want to support
// priority/resource-name/relax-locality specification for AM containers
Is there another way to launch a container for an application master on a specific node in Hadoop-2.6.0?
